Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has light-heartedly threatened to withhold rent if his landlord fails to do the football club a favour by steering Leicester to victory over Manchester City next week.
Klopp joked that he will not pay his landlord Brendan Rodgers, who is currently manager of Leicester FC, unless he is able to mastermind a win over City when the two clubs meet at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday 6th May.
The German boss, 51, replaced the now-Leicester chief at Anfield in October 2015 - and moved into the Formby mansion owned by Rodgers.
In an interview with Sky, Klopp was jokingly asked whether he would consider withholding rent should Rodgers’ fail to take points off City.
Klopp said: “Can I? In Germany that’s not possible but if it is in England then tell me”
“They have to do their own job themselves and we have to do ours.
“I really have no problem that. I'm really happy about the situation.”
